4 Ways to Create a Dual Purpose Room
Maximize a small space with the help of these tips from Architect Ivy Tablante-Darilag
Do you live in a studio unit that serves as your living and sleeping space? You can create an efficient home that meets your needs!
Architect Ivy Tablante-Darilag shares a couple of tips on how you can turn a small space into a dual purpose area.
Choose a good quality sofa
Look for a sturdy but comfortable sofa that can serve multiple functions. “This is useful if you have no budget for other furniture pieces,” says architect Ivy.
Opt for a sofa bed
If you plan on using your bed as a sofa, try finding a piece that doesn’t have a tall headboard or footboard. Make sure you measure your space first so you can get a piece that fits perfectly.
Pick furniture with secret storage
“Using furniture pieces that double as storage compartments is a smart strategy,” shares architect Ivy. A study desk with built-in drawers and storage ottomans are perfect examples of multipurpose pieces.
Maximize vertical spaces
Architect Ivy adds that built-in wall systems are functional, space-saving and stylish when designed properly. These systems can help distinguish the function of the area from another.
RL Tip: Style your open shelves by adding fabric or colorful paper.
